I Must Go – Lyrics

I Must Go

Come and sit here in the silence

Give me your hand for a while

See how the sun slips the sky

With a sigh

All of my clothes fall around me

You cover me with a smile

My body aches when you cry

But it’s time

Once I’d a house with a garden

Doors that looked out on a view

All this I’ll soon give to you

Make it new

Long ago I heard the songbirds

Now I hear voices I know

Calmly remove your smooth hand

I must go
